Possible Counterfeit Drugs at Two Baltimore Pharmacies

Posted Aug 23 2008 3:21pm
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning consumers who filled prescriptions at The Medicine Shoppe pharmacies located at 8035A Liberty Road and 5900 Reisterstown Road in Baltimore that they may have received drugs that were either expired or suspected counterfeit. FDA is particularly concerned because a number of the drugs are for serious diseases and could have an adverse effect on treatment.

The Products in Question

Lisinopril (20 milligrams)

Guaifenesin/Dextromethorphan (600 mg and 1000 mg)

Gabapentin (100 mg, 300 mg and 400 mg)

Metoprolol (50 mg)

Nifedipine (30 mg)

Diclofenac Sodium (30 mg)

Glucophage (500 mg Extended Release)

Glucovance (125 mg and 500 mg)

Glipizide/Metformin (2.50 mg/250 mg)

Furosemide (20 mg)

Tamoxifen Citrate (10 mg)

Metformin HCl ER (500 mg)

Calcitrol (0.25 micrograms)

FDA has no evidence that any other Medicine Shoppe pharmacies outside of the 8035A Liberty Road and 5900 Reisterstown Road facilities are involved.

FDA is strongly advising consumers who filled prescriptions for these drugs at these two pharmacies to contact their prescribing physician immediately for new prescriptions.
